Past Symposia: 2017-2018
Juvenescence/Obsolescence: Humanities Approaches to Aging Across the Ages
The theme of our 2017-2018 symposium is Juvenescence/Obsolescence: Humanities Approaches to Aging across the Ages. There have been events all year long on the topic of age. This includes a humanities collaboration reading group; a yearlong talk series curated by MHC faculty board member Frédéric Rondeau: “Life of Ideas, Notions, and Concepts” which will include a fall panel, spring panel, and guest speakers Enzo Traverso and Éric Méchoulan; a two day event on “The Analog Age” with special guest Damon Krukowski; an examination of the book Juvenescence; lectures; class tie-ins; events during digital humanities week; and a focus on age during the pre-performance lecture series.
